30 Pete Volk [no title]
27 Sephtical Yeah but Gary walked by him in a hallway once so obviously he's to blame for this

11 DrH-Terp2005 I think I did my part for the good mojo this weekend
11 Mike S. Listing Cassell is disingenuous.
11 NattyBoAndOldBay Pete out with his friends...
10 Andrew Emmer Guys! I really like Pack!
10 duck I'm gonna miss all those games with our designated rival Pitt, though.

6 NattyBoAndOldBay No thread.
